Fuori dall’anonimato – mestieri da illuminare: dalle direttrici di casting del cinema alle segretarie dei nostri uffici

14 SEPTEMBER. Triennale Milano, Viale Alemagna 6

A reflection on the invisible professions of women in cinema and beyond.


Starting from the cinema to enter the companies or inside the offices, Fuori dall’anonimato aims to illuminate the feminine activities that are still too often gregarious in a male world. Between die-hard stereotypes, poor visibility, pay gap. But also the personal achievements of women who love their work. And they're taking it out of the shadows. Who said that the female labour market remains immobile? There are old professions that are changing face, even under the pressure by the technological revolution of these years. And new jobs that strongly demand citizenship rights and full recognition.


With Giorgio Bassani, HR manager - Francesca Comencini, director - Ubaldo La Porta, notary - Ivana Lotito, actress - Cristiana Mainardi, founder of Fuoricinema - Laura Muccino, casting director - Evita Paleari, long-time secretary. Meeting organized by Fuoricinema and Il Tempo delle Donne.
